13 ladies seated together at a large round table. It was great! Nathan was so friendly and efficient.

We were seated almost immediately at our reservation time. We all had wonderful and delicious dinners. No complaints at all! Nathan handled separate checks like a professional:)

This is a great place to have lunch with the family or with yourselves. We come here pretty often which says ALOT since we live at the beach and have our choice. They always treat the kids well and have a good menu for them to choose from including a kids' Orange Crush (try the adult one too for you-... More

This lovely restaurant has get views of the beach and is close to hotels and shopping. The food was EXCELLENT and the service was very good. I visited one day for a business lunch and returned the next day with friends. The crab cakes are to die for! and the flourless chocolate cake and key lime pie where exceptional.

While visiting VA Beach, chose Waterman's and had a very nice meal with very good service. Reasonably priced and very good quality.

From the outside it doesn't look like much, from the inside it's incredibly set up, decorated and man this place is hopping! The food is delicious the environment is cozy yet spacious. I'd recommend highly!

Early evening dinner was intolerable unless you are looking to take your unruly children to an upscale Chucky Cheese! Noise was intolerable in the ocean view room and the Muzak blasting in back made for a "get me outta here" moment. Good was good but expensive but good enough to go back.

This place is super busy, even in off season on a Sunday. The view is nice, but wow is it loud. We were seated in the "outside" seating area which was enclosed with isinglass and super loud/crowded. We declined seating and agreed to wait for inside seating, but the wait was long so we sat in the bar area. This... More

Can't beat this great seafood restaurant. Our family had a number of dishes and all very good. Most of seating has a view of the ocean and restaurant itself is casual to upscale. Went for lunch and prices and portions were less than dinner, but perfect for our appetites. Will definitely return.

Waterman's is wonderful. Location, service, food, staff, event staff. Everything. Our daughter wanted to have a low key wedding, and Courtney Brough and staff accommodated beautifully. They allowed us a short ceremony in the Attic, and dinner downstairs for 16 in the surf room. What a fantastic opportunity for family and friends to celebrate! Professionalism abounds, it's clear this staff... More
